"My family of four (plus our dog) stayed for a week in August and had a wonderful time. The cottage is charming, comfortable, and well kept. The kitchen is well stocked, which was a big help. We've taken a lot of beach vacations, and this setting is the most magical we've ever experienced. We definitely plan to return, and I know a lot of family members are now interested in staying at the cottage as well. Thanks for sharing your lovely home."

"A retirement celebration trip to see beautiful autumn colors in northern Michigan with my husband Larry (married 41 years) included a very special and delightful two night stay at Richard & Stephanie Guyor's darling A-Frame beach home in Harbor Springs. I was looking for a charming place near Lake Michigan, nestled in the woods and this darling little place was just the ticket! Talk about clever and efficient construction... this wonderful economy size hide-a-way had everything we needed and was designed with comfort & convenience in mind and eye appeal. We were so pleased with the features of this mini beauty... such as the gorgeous interior wood and marble tile floor, nice built-in places for things, a great TV with lots and lots of stations, a multi-purpose space saving kitchen unit that contained a frig, a good size sink and burners for stove-top cooking and all the necessary dishes & kitchen utensils, There was a very nice inside half bath with toilet & sink and cabinet underneath and a fabulous outdoor shower (which felt terrific!). For sleeping, we pulled out a lovely futon that turned into a comfortable bed. Larry is 6'1" and he didn't have any problem with bumping his head. We loved the big desk with an unobstructed view of Lake Michigan and we made a point of star gazing on the deck at night. One of our favorite thing was sitting on the beach at night with a campfire and watching/listening to the waves coming into shore. We wished we had been able to stay a whole week, as it would have been fun to explore the beach & woods more. The ride to get to this A-Frame was gorgeous in fall and parts of it took us through the M-119 "Tunnel of Trees" which was just fantastic to do... amazing colors & views of Lake Michigan! Our host, Richard, was such an attentive host and made sure we knew all the features of his beach home and gave us tips about where to eat in the area. We enjoyed Legs Inn (authentic Polish food yum yum) and New York (classy restaurant, delicious food and two for one pricing before 5:30 pm!) Richard was very interesting and quite talented and showed us the stone waterfalls he had created throughout his property, including a real moat and drawbridge at his adjacent home. All in all... we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves at this special A-frame beach home and would definitely go there again... maybe next summer, so we could enjoy playing in Lake Michigan too - with some kayaks that are made available for guests. Excellent stay!"

"We had such a wonderful vacation. We took our grandsons and enjoyed the beautiful cottage, although the boys were a little afraid of the loft ladder, we just enjoyed the cottage, the yard, the beach. We had wonderful beach days, and easy day trips to the UP and Mackinac Island. We hope to go again. The owners are kind, and very pleasant to work with.
Karen, I love all your cross-stitch work samplers! Beautiful!!"

"The cottage was very well equipped for our stay. We really appreciate a washer and dryer while on vacation. It was also clean and cute! The owners were responsive and nice to work with. We loved the walking/bike trail close to the cottage and walked it every day. In addition the cottage had a great location. We were easily able to go to Harbor Springs and Petoskey (the best fudge in Michigan can be found at Howse's Fudge in Harbor Springs). We also made an easy trip to Wilderness State Park in northwest corner of the lower peninsula. It was beautiful and a perfect place to hike and swim."
